This Sinking Island is an interactive piece that challenges us to work together to help our neighbors when climate change displaces us from our homes. It's devised in two parts. Part one showcases a chorus of climate refugees who tell their stories of home and how extreme weather changed their lives. Part two focuses the threat of climate change to one story about three siblings who meet an unexpected friend while relocating homes after rising sea levels flood their Manhattan apartment.
